While the Gators and all other NCAA competition are currently in a stand-still, the sports world still has a way to sorting through which will come out on top.

Since 2013, ESPN has used a ranking system based on FPI, or Football Power Index, in an effort to predict the outcomes for not only the upcoming season but also as the season progresses.

However, ESPN makes sure to note that the rankings do not necessarily constitute playoff rankings as they have another system based on strength of schedule and other key performance indicators to establish which four teams should make the playoffs.

For now, the Gators are ranked 12th in FPI, and it is important to understand how ESPN comes to such a conclusion.
